Low-cost airline Monarch has announced plans to introduce extra flights for the next ski season. The winter ski schedule will now feature flights from London Gatwick to Grenoble and Manchester to Innsbruck.
The carrier is adding two new routes for the winter 2012/2013 schedule. The carrier will operate three weekly flights from Manchester to Innsbruck from December 16 2012 until April 14 2013.
In addition to this, four weekly flights from London Gatwick to Grenoble will operate from December 14 2012 until April 14 2013.
“We are delighted to be expanding our already extensive winter 2012/13 ski programme with the addition of flights to Grenoble and Innsbruck,” said Kevin George, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines.
“This further emphasises our on-going commitment to providing a diverse leisure product offering to our customers.”
The extra flights from Gatwick and Manchester airports are the latest in several new routes that Monarch has launched for the next ski season.
The airline recently announced that it is to launch a new UK base, at East Midlands Airport, from August 30 this year.
The new base will see Monarch’s services from the airport expanded for the 2012/2013 ski season, as well as the 2013 summer season.
“We have been delighted by the response to the announcement that we will be opening a new base and new flights from East Midlands Airport this summer,” added Mr George.
“The rapid expansion of our network from East Midlands Airport is testament to our commitment to provide choice, value and superior customer service to more and more customers in the Midlands.”
The ski season may still seem like a long way off, but it never hurts to book early and have something to look forward to. After all, we don’t seem to be getting much of a summer this year!
